    I love the campus! Everyone is so down to earth and friendly. I loved my first week here- the freshman orientation was amazing! Everyone was really geared to helping the incoming students! Because the campus is so small, everything and everyone feels close-knit. I see people I know all the time walking to class! Classes are small, too. No more than 30 kids, except maybe in the GenEd classes, but I'm sure it wouldn't surpass 50.

    I think Whitewater is beautiful, first of all, particularly in the Springtime. Some people say that everyone goes home on the weekends, but that's not true anymore. There's a lot to do in Whitewater, though it's a small town. During football season, our games (on Saturdays usually) are always a good time, because our team is so good (Division 3 Champions!) In the University Center, there is a bowling alley, $1 movies shown nearly every weekend that are fun and CURRENT movies, good food like UNO's pizza, and comedians or bands to listen to on Thursday nights. If you live in a dorm, your floor will have weekly activities going on like Game Night or S'mores parties, where it's easy to make friends. In town there are also things to do like check out the library or thrift shops, get a tattoo downtown, go for a walk along the beach, get a bite to eat at one of the diners in town, or get a drink at one of the bars if you're of age. Whitewater does seem to have a ritual called Thirsty Thursday. If you're not a partier however, don't worry. People don't usually get too crazy- unless it's Homecoming.
